Bravo's original programming is getting a boost with the greenlight of 17 new unscripted series, renewal of 18 ongoing unscripted shows and announcement of six more shows in development.

Additionally, Bravo added three unscripted projects to its development slate: Gordon Ramsay's competition series "America's Best Restaurant" modeled after his U.K. series "Ramsay's Best Restaurant"; "Rich People's Problems," another "Atlanta" spinoff starring Phaedra Parks and focused on quirky legal cases; and "Ivy League Confidential" following four elite college admissions consultants in New York and Los Angeles.

Bravo also continues to work on scripted programming (the network's scripted pilot "Rita," starring Anna Gunn of "Breaking Bad," is in production and could go

Gordon Ramsay to sign exclusive one-year deal to stay at Channel 4

Despite disappointing ratings for Gordon's Great Escape, broadcaster understood to have agreed in principle to contract

TV chef Gordon Ramsay will sign an exclusive one-year deal to stay with Channel 4.

Despite his latest series, Gordon's Great Escape, not performing as well as expected, the broadcaster wants to keep him on and he is understood to have agreed in principle to a new contract, although the deal has yet been signed.

Unlike his previous multi-year deals, Channel 4 offered Ramsay a one-year extension to his golden handcuffs deal.

It is understood that Ramsay had exploratory conversations with ITV – which makes his hit Us show Hell's Kitchen – but has decided to re-sign to Channel 4.

Ramsay's current deal expires next month and according to sources the final details of the new contract, thought to be worth just under £1m, will be sorted out when he returns to the UK in a couple of weeks.

Have viewers finally fallen out of love with Gordon Ramsay?

The sweary chef has lost his ratings mojo. So does Gordon's Great Escape mark the moment that television viewers stopped caring about Ramsay?

The third episode of Gordon Ramsay's new series Gordon's Great Escape aired last night. You probably didn't watch it. Why would you? Just look at what it was up against. The new Adam Curtis documentary. Game of Thrones. The ITV series about Strangeways. A show about special ambulances for fat people. The episode of Glee where they sing that Rebecca Black song. Alongside televisual titans like these, no wonder people aren't tuning in.

This hasn't always been the case. Not so long ago, a Gordon Ramsay series would be all but guaranteed success. Hell's Kitchen made him a star. Kitchen Nightmares demonstrated his flair as a restaurateur. The stunts Ramsay pulled in The F Word made for constant headline fodder.

But Gordon's Great Escape has been met with almost blanket apathy.

Gordon Ramsay to be thrown to the sharks

Ramsay's Shark Bait will see chef investigating environmental impact of fishing as well as swimming with a bull shark

He gave us the F Word – lots of them – and had a bellyful of Kitchen Nightmares. Now Channel 4 has a new wheeze for resident chef Gordon Ramsay – throwing him to the sharks.

Ramsay's latest Channel 4 series, Ramsay's Best Restaurant, did not perform as well as his previous efforts so Ramsay's Shark Bait could be just the ratings tonic he requires.

The chef goes swimming with a bull shark – among the most likely sharks to attack humans – in what Channel 4 says is his "scariest challenge to date".

It is part of the broadcaster's latest season of food programmes in what has become an annual January event featuring Ramsay, Jamie Oliver, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Heston Blumenthal and new recruit, chef and eco-friendly restaurateur Arthur Potts Dawson.

Jay Hunt faces dilemma over renewal of Gordon Ramsay's Channel 4 deal

Ramsay's contract runs until mid-2011 and new chief creative officer will have to decide if he still has ratings golden touch

The question of whether to renew Gordon Ramsay's exclusive deal with Channel 4 will be one of the biggest decisions awaiting Jay Hunt when she joins as chief creative officer on 5 January.

Ramsay's four-year contract runs until the middle of 2011 and with disappointing figures for his latest Channel 4 series by his impressive standards and lurid media coverage of his personal life and business dealings, Hunt will have to decide if he still has the ratings golden touch.

The unflattering headlines reached a crescendo last week with Ramsay's open letter to his mother-in-law in the pages of the London Evening Standard, in which he revealed he had paid a private detective to investigate his father-in-law and ousted business manager, Chris Hutcheson.

One source close to Channel 4 said:

Gordon Ramsay: the culinary hot ticket is beginning to cool down

Family dissension, declining restaurant ratings, and a lack of enthusiasm for his latest television offerings add up to trouble for the celebrity chef

Gordon Ramsay has been no stranger to bad news in the last couple of years. His restaurant empire has faltered; he has been accused of torrid sexual wrongdoings; former proteges have turned against him.

Through it all, the two central relationships in his life have appeared to stand firm: that to his wife, Tana, and to his father-in-law and business partner, Chris Hutcheson. Last week, however, the second of these was shown to be less resilient than was thought when it was announced that Hutcheson had left his position as CEO of Gordon Ramsay Holdings Ltd.

It isn't yet clear what caused the rupture (all we know is that it followed a blazing row) but the implications for Ramsay cannot be anything other than extremely worrying. More
